There are two facets to baiting, ethical and ecological.

Ethically, I leave that up to the shooter. If it is legal and one chooses to hunt over bait, that is thier business. As for me, no. I have hunted over bait twice, did not enjoy either as to me, it was not hunting. It was simply shooting. My last time was in Sask. and I shot a high 130" buck in which I take no pride or satisfaction.

Ecologically, I oppose baiting because I believe it may lead to a greater chance of the spread of disease. Although I can furnish no prove of this, to me, it is simply common sense. My degree is in wildlife biology and the concentration of animals in a highly restricted area for the purpose of feeding just does not make good sense to me.
